Although the Japanese brand has recently brought us its updated model for the year 2018, it seems that the 2019 Nissan Silvia S16 has already been on its way to hit the showrooms. The sports car fans have been looking forward to this concept and its changes and innovations, but we must admit that they should not be expecting anything revolutionary to happen.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Nissan Silvia S16, this model will most likely remain a coupe-like sports car with some race-inspired and sporty features. The Japanese carmaker will certainly tend to make this model more appealing to its customers in terms of exterior design. After all, the Silvia S16 has been considered a great competition to models such as the Toyota GT-86 and Subaru BRZ. The car will generally appear wider and lower, but it will also come smaller in dimensions which could affect the inside space. It will be more attractive and significantly more rounded than the previous model. The 2019 Silvia S16 will keep its long hood and shorter rear end, but it will not be as sharp as its predecessor. In the front fascia, you will find a large rhomboidal chrome grille as well as its thin and slender LED headlights. Down under, you will also notice a redesigned bumper with wide air intake in it. The sloping roof and rounded edges, especially in the rear part of the vehicle, will only give this model a sportier and more modern appearance. In the back, we have noticed modern LED taillights and a high-placed spoiler.
The interior of the 2019 Nissan Silvia S16 will provide a modern cabin with wide and comfortable seats that will perfectly accommodate up to five adult passengers. The seats will even be covered in premium-leather in higher trims. The driver will also get a larger touch-screen display with the infotainment system. It will provide many next-generation features such as satellite navigation, music and audio system, USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity and it will include all the necessary safety systems and driver assist features as well.
Several options have been considered when it comes to engine that the 2019 Nissan Silvia S16 will use, but none of them has been confirmed yet. This model could come with either a 1.2-liter petrol engine or the current 1.6-liter turbocharged. Both of them are expected to hit around 200 horsepower. The other option includes a 1.8-liter petrol engine with 156 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, but there is also a possibility of getting a 2.0-liter with 200 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. Be that as it may, the engine of the new Silvia will be mated to six-speed automatic transmission.
